Car Sideswipes Elephant In Enid

Enid police are investigating a crash between a car and an elephant.Officers said a couple was driving home from church when it side-swiped a bull elephant near 4200 N. Van Buren Bypass. The elephant had escaped from a circus at the Garfield County Fairgrounds and was roaming along U.S. 81.Investigators said the elephant did not appear to be seriously injured. It did suffer a broken tusk and bruises.The elephant was chained in a field after the crash while workers prepared to tranquilize him and load him up.The couple was not injured and their car was not heavily damaged.

The moral of the story: Never go to church?

Not sure if these events occurred during your short sojourn in New Orleans, but they had both a bear and donkey hit on the interstate in the city limits in the late 90's.
